One of the advantages of owning a high-quality golf glove is that it can last you a long time, but every once in a while you need to replace it, often earlier than you might think. However, people can be hesitant to get rid of their old glove and start looking for a new one. Sometimes it’s sentimental, sometimes it’s about cutting costs, but sometimes people genuinely don’t know when it’s time for a new glove. Here’s a guide for when it’s time to replace your golf glove.


Look at your golf gloves

To know when you need to change your golf glove, you have to look at your glove first

Firstly, if your glove has any holes or tears, it’s definitely time to replace it. You should also absolutely start looking for a new glove if your current one no longer fits due to overstretching, has lost its grip, or has gotten crispy. Beyond these definitive signs, the proper time to change your glove can vary on several different factors, so let’s look at those.


How often do you use your golf glove?

To know when you need to chage your golf glove, it depends about how often you're playing golf

How often you play naturally changes how long your glove lasts, if you play a lot, your gloves simply won’t last that long. What type of glove you wear also matters, leather gloves typically don’t last as long as composite ones. Furthermore, if you play in a more humid climate, the moisture will wear down your glove faster. How you take care of your glove also matters, the better you maintain your gloves and properly clean them will extend their lifespans. A typical rule of thumb is that a golf glove will last around 10 rounds, but these factors can alter that.


Golf gloves and clubs matters

To know when you need to change your golf glove, your golf clubs matters

How you grip your clubs also matters, if you do so in a manner that requires a lot of grip from your glove, it will wear down faster and you’ll need to replace it more often.

Finally, a sure-fire way to make sure your glove lasts longer is to buy one that’s high quality. Invictus has a lineup of superior golf gloves at a great price.
